99+ Ways to Find Paid Blogging Opportunities

One of the biggest questions I get asked about blogging is, “How do you make money blogging?” And to be honest, there’s no simple answer to that. There are as many ways to earn an income with a blog as there are types of blogs out there across the net. Which is to say – there are a LOT of ways to make money with a blog. Like, a LOT. From sponsored posts to ebooks to ad networks to social media shares to ambassadorships, and more. Your blog can be just the starting point – launching you into TV, YouTube, podcasts, published books, freelance work, speaking, teaching…. The sky is truly the limit when you’re building an online presence!

99+ Ways to Make Money Blogging

The other common questions I often get asked are, “When should I start trying to monetize my blog? How big/how much traffic/how long should I be blogging before I can earn an income?” Most advice I’ve read around the web recommends waiting – there are a lot of different benchmarks out there that they suggest you reach first. But I say – start today! I started my blog as a business. From the beginning I placed ads on my site, signed up for as many sponsored post and affiliate networks as I could, and got to work building a brand where I could fit those paid opportunities in organically. Sure, it was pennies at first. But I am now earning a full-time income from blogging and my other freelance and consulting work, plus enough to hire help – including my Mister, who now works from home with me as my partner.

There are also programs directly through different brands that you can sign up for. Not all of these will offer paid opportunities – many may just be product reviews or projects that pay in gift cards. But, they’re still fun, and an awesome way to get to try out products from your favorite brands, share them with your readers, and build relationships.

Freelance Writing and guest posting are other great ways to earn money from the influence you’re building online through your blog. There might be topics you’d love to write about, but maybe they’re not a good fit for your blog. It’s important to have some type of niche to your blog – whether it’s a specific topic like recipes or fashion, or even just something that makes you – “you,” like your humor or photography style. So, if you have other things you’d like to write about, freelance writing can be a perfect choice. You can use it to try out a new niche before committing to a new blog {because once you start blogging – ohmyheck, you’ll have a million new ideas a week, I tell ya.} Or, use it as another outlet to randomly post about whatever flavor of the week is on your mind. Here are some places you can get started, and be paid for your work:


  1. About.com
  2. Examiner.com
  3. Squidoo
  4. Type A Parent
  5. Yahoo Contributors
  6. Problogger
  7. Wise Bread
  8. HubPages
  9. Helium Network
  10. Demand Studios
  11. Constant Content
  12. Triond
  13. Elance
  14. Odesk
  15. Guru
  16. iFreelance
  17. Freelancer.com
  18. Your Online Biz
  19. Read Learn Write
  20. One Spoon at a Time
  21. Patch.com

Again – if you have any other suggestions that I should add – PLEASE leave some comments below. And – this is still a work in progress. I’ll be adding to it once a month, and will also try to organize the list a little better, with a snippet of info about each site, to make it easier to figure out which ones are a good fit for you. Until then – I hope you find some info that’s helpful, and share with any other bloggers you know who want to boost their income and find new opportunities too!

I just dont want to be working for free when I should be getting paid….. your thoughts on this would be amazing!
